Cefiro #3

Recommended Posts

Hi chaps,


Back again with another cefiro. Wanted to get something with most of the work already done to save my hip pocket. Found this ceffy up in QLD, got it for a good price and drove it home with a mate over the weekend. In hindsight, I should have done some things to it before driving it home. End result was 1 blown coilover, having to buy 2 tires and swap the stockies on to stop scraping.


After driving the thing for 26 hrs (18 hrs in 1 day) it is performing well so far. Doesn't need much done, just going to get the tune checked out, get a new drivers seat and hit up some events.







Series 2 RB25det gearbox with near new NPC button clutch, also just fitted a new centre bearing.

completely forged rebuilt series 2 rb25det engine. (same engine that matches the mod certificates)

scat rods, JE forged pistons, Total seal rings. All balanced with the clutch flywheel and balancer all attached.

Engine sits at a good 8:7:1 ratio so still responsive and not lazy off boost.

head had all tests done for warping and cracks etc. and all new valve guides fitted.

permaseal multilayer steel headgasket

Brand new nissan standard oil pump

front and rear main seals

new tensioner, idler and gates racing timing belt

new water pump

Apexi power FC ECU with handcontroller

Currently tuned to 366hp on 21psi


Greddy copy front facing plenum that has had the ports cleaned up on and the manifold faced for proper seal to the head.

SARD 850cc injectors in standard fuel rail

Drift fuel pressure regulator with associated speedflow lines

D1 remote header tank for the cooling system.

Massive 52mm alloy radiator and still running standard clutch fan. (thermos simply dont work trust me!!)

splitfire coilpacks

GARRETT GT2876r dual ball bearing turbo with internal wastegate and standard nissan dump pipe rear housing.

VH41de airflow metre with custom pod adaptor and filter

Greddy profec electronic boost controller with incab adjustment.

rears are s14 5 stud hubs with gktech extra long wheel studs.

S13 JIC MAGIC Coilovers. Base height adjustable front and rear and dampening adjustable think they are 8kg fronts and 6kg rears from memory but relatively comfortable on the street anyway

these have been properly done with the standard bodywork cut, stitched then glassed/filled and painted.

full URAS bodykit with spare kit aswell.

DMAX roof wing

carbon wrapped pillars.


Wheels are genuine SSR Vienna schnitte wheels

rears are 18 x 10.5 +5 with a 8mm spacer to clear the bigger brakes (hence the long wheel studs)

Fronts are 18 x 9.5 +30 with a 45mm spacer to bring the track width inline with the rears.

Quick update. Haven't done much with the car recently. I sold the bolt in cage out of it so I can get a CAMS cage made up for some events this year.



Picked up some pieces to neaten the car up - S2 lights, front kick panels and a dash surround.


Old S1 lights:




Added S2 lights. Amazing how much better the S2 lights make the car look.
